By dinner time, we will arrive for a cooking demonstration along with private tour and dinner at Warther’s Carvings.

We will have a guided tour to see all the carvings created by the Warther family – it is incredible. Visit Mrs. Warther’s Swiss Garden and Button house, the original family home, the tulip beds, and one of the area’s finest gift shops is the exclusive home of Warther’s Cutlery.
